How to Wall Paper A Fridge| This Mamas Dance-1So, I may have wall papered the fridge. And by may, I mean I wall papered the fridge.
I’ve teamed up with Wayfair for this super simple DIY using wall paper- with a twist- because it’s not on the wall… so buckle your seat belts and get ready to learn how I wall papered our fridge!

Neutral Wall papered Fridge| This Mamas Dance-1I have never used wall paper before, so I was nervous, but not too nervous, because let’s face it, there isn’t a whole lot I could do to ruin my 1980’s fridge. If it’s in your budget, the nifty peel and stick wall paper that is available would be awesome for this project too, especially if you are a renter- I used good ol’ paste.

Here’s what you will need:

How to Wall Paper Your Fridge This Mamas Dance-1I literally bought a little wall paper tool kit for less than $9 with everything you see above, not including the paste or paper. Let’s talk about the paper briefly- it is a soft and subtle floral with a lovely texture. I thought of going bright and crazy, but our cabinets on the other side already have a pop of color, so I wanted whimsy, without too loud a voice.

The first step for most would be to remove your handles, my fridge is a mini-titan (it is like 30 years old and still running) so I could not remove the handles. I just cut around them- it works, and I like to remind myself that it’s not about perfection! Be sure your fridge is clean and dry before you start.

Step 1: Measure your fridge, length and width. Add an inch to the measurements.

Step 2: Transfer your measurement to the paper, marking several spots long the paper.

Step 3: Cut your paper using a straight edge and sharp blade. I used a scrap piece of trim, and placed a piece of scrap cardboard underneath while I cut.

Step 4: Apply a liberal amount of paste (as per instructions) Allow to sit for a few minutes if required.

Step 5: You are now ready to apply your paper. I chose to work from the inside edge- and squared up the side and top first. Firmly press all areas of the paper and smooth out any air bubbles. Wipe up any excess paste with a sponge.

This was a fun way to pretty up our hodge podge kitchen- I was inspired one of my favorite instagram accounts @farmhouseforfour. Lauren has a sweet little wall papered fridge- albeit a much more modern day one- but it was just the little push I needed to try this out in my own home.

I hope you have found a little inspiration here today.
